any regional activities that are south of the county line. instead of taking cal train and other transit that are widely scattered this effort to explore the areas is greatly appreciated. community outreach methods and accommodations are all things i look forward to help out with. i have community communication skills and transit skills poirn to the part of san francisco. i was placed in the workforce development and working on a project concerning the city streamlininging systems.

is consistently returning over capacity picture i've seen first hand the rider tt e continuously frustrated by their ability to take the trains. the situation is severe enough to look at creative ways. i know we have several trains we anticipate to arrive in the next couple of years but this is more of an immediate situation that hopefully can help with the problem. your train carry 1 hundred and plus seats. based on the analysis from my and my commissioners staff we believe that by reconfiguring
those seats we can allow more - >> commissioner breed after our done we'll continue with the attorneys feedback. >> when the two train car stops 60 more people will be more inclined to ride muni and not use their vehicles. if you're one of the 16 people i'm sure you'll be happy. he will even though our calculations are wrong it will still help to mitigate the passengers and to help with the situation speaker i look forward to hearing your thoughts and hope we can implement 0 portion of those changes in our l r v
program >> your rules of order provides that in the absence of a qualm no official action can be taken so we have to recess, reschedule or yearn. >> we're going to recess for a couple of minutes until the next commissioner comes in and hopefully, we'll recess for 5 minutes and a hopefully, i'll be appointed to sit for this item. >> let's recess for 5 minutes and maybe - yeah. >> are you back apparentlyly. yeah, so our recess is concluded and thank you for your comments and now commissioner weaning for his opening comments >> thank you. i want to thank
commissioner yee i thought we'd get a break but no. and i want to thank supervisor breed it's been great to have our two offices to work on one of the nuts and bolts quality of life for our city. i would have loved to have long been one of the 16 people to get on the train during rush hour and car after cargoes by and we don't have enough l r vs and they're basically designed to minimize standing room. our light rail system is an absolutely essentially part of the muni i see fleet and essential to having
